Building Bridges over WBAI radio, 99.5FM
with Mimi Rosenberg & Ken Nash
Mon., April 29, 2013, 7 - 8 pm EST

********************************
The Blood, Sweat & Tears Of Bangladesh√Ęs Garment Workers
Stain The Clothes of Multi-National Corps. Who Reap Huge
Profits From Workers' Misery
with
Barbara Briggs, Asst. Dir., Institute for Global Labor & Human Rights
and
Kalpona Atker, Ex. Dir., Bangladesh Center for Worker Solidarity

To date, more than 382 are confirmed dead, 2,044 people have been
rescued, more than 1,000 of them injured and 1,000 people are
unaccounted for, or still trapped inside the concrete wreckage of the
collapsed garment factory in Bangladesh. Meanwhile, the Western
multinational corporations who subcontract sewing their brands to
Bangladesh, an economy where 80% of its exports are from the
apparel trade stubbornly refuse to join workplace safety plans in
Bangladesh. They still refuse to compensate the injured and the
families of those who previously died sewing their brands. Since the
infamous Tazreen factory fire blaze in November where 112 died there
have been dozens more factory fires since and now hundreds killed
in this week's Rana Plaza building collapse. How many people will
have to sacrifice their lives for the corporate bottom line?

What Then Must We Do?
with
Gar Alperovitz, author, What Then Must We Do? and The Next
American Revolution: Beyond Corporate Capitalism and State
Socialism

While there's been no shortage of commentary about the structural crisis
plaguing the American economic and political system, from wage stagnation
and chronic unemployment to unchecked corporate and state power and
growing inequality, analyses that offer practical, politically viable solutions to
these problems have been few and far between. Gar Alperovitz is a rare and
stunning exception. Through his new book and film and his ongoing research
and activism, Alperovitz highlights efforts already under way in thousands of
communities across the U.S., from co-ops and community land trusts to
municipal, state, and federal initiatives to organize and democratize capital.
Alperovitz marshals years of research to show how bottom-up strategies can
work to check monopolistic corporate power, democratize wealth, and
empower communities.
